Fully funded, thank you backers and VWR!!!
With five days to go my project has been fully backed!!! I am so thankful to all of you and am extremely excited to get in the lab to begin the work processing those samples! As I make progress I will periodically send out lab notes letting you all know how the project is going and what the status of the work is.
If you donated $50 or more please be thinking of potential virus names and I will get in touch with you in the near future to figure out what you will be naming your virus!!!
I definitely need to send VWR (A laboratory supply company) a shout-out for their awesome donation of a GenomiPhi amplification kit! This dropped my goal by $525 and made a huge difference in getting my project funded!!! I told my local sales rep, Gustavo Galdo, about my crowdfunding campaign and he made this happen, which was so incredibly awesome and will definitely have me contacting them when I begin purchasing the other materials needed for this project! VWR you rock!
I sent out the Valentine's Day cards that all backers were promised earlier today, so if you did not receive yours please let me know and I will resend it.
Again, thank you all so much for your amazing support!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
